Merrild Kaffe A/S
Merrild Kaffe A/S in Kolding, Denmark, has converted its packaging plant. Using the fast SPEED7 CPUs from VIPA the speed of the packaging machines was able to be substantially increased.
The Danish coffee roaster has significantly improved the capacity of its packaging machines by the conversion of its packaging plant and the use of the fast SPEED7 CPUs form VIPA. The performance of the now first converted packaging machine has, as expected, increased by 17 percent.
Merrild processes and packages a third of the coffee that is consumed each year in Denmark, and had no room for the expansion of the packaging facilities. Therefore the existing systems had to run faster. The cycle time of the system was decisive to avoid bottlenecks.
